About me

Welcome to my web page! I am a Professor at the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Pittsburgh.

I specialize in Stellar Astrophysics. My research interests include supernovae, supernova remnants, stellar evolution, stellar multiplicity, and data science. I am particularly intrigued by the progenitor systems of Type Ia supernovae. You can learn more about my work in the Research section, and find all the excruciating details in the Publications section.

Before coming to Pittsburgh in 2011, I held postdoctoral positions at the Department of Astrophysics of Tel-Aviv University and the Experimental Astrophysics Group of the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel; the Department of Astrophysical Sciences of Princeton University, and a the Department of Physics and Astronomy of Rutgers University. I got my PhD in Astrophysics in 2004 from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) and the Insititut d’Estudis Espacials de Catalunya (IEEC) in Barcelona, Spain. You can find more details in the CV section.

My office is 309, on the 3rd floor of Allen Hall, here is a map of the Pitt campus.
